Top 16 Foods To Eat: During Pregnancy

A list of healthy foods to eat during pregnancy.
Pregnancy is a wonderful part of the human
lifecycle but can be very straining on the
female body.
The body will need more nutrients so that
it can support the growth of a healthy baby,
and be a strong and healthy mother.
Taking supplements in pills are synthetic
and often have side effects, so it’s important
to eat the right foods rich in nutrients.
In today’s video we will share with you a
list of the best foods for pregnant women
to eat.
1. Eggs
Eggs contain all the building blocks of life
are a key source of nutrients. They are rich
in proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals
which help the cells to heal and grow.
2. Salmon
Wild caught salmon is rich in Vitamin A which
is important for growing new cells in children.
It tells the cells what to form into such
as heart tissue, spinal tissue etc… A deficiency
in Vitamin A can lead to miscarriage and underweight
children.
3. Cod Liver Oil
To boost your levels of Vitamin A, we highly
recommend taking virgin cod liver oil capsules.
Icelandic sources are the healthiest. These
also strengthen eye health in both mother
and baby.
4. Almonds
These nuts support a healthy overall body
and are a great source of manganese. Nuts
in general can help to grow healthy bones
in children, and prevent flat feet and jaw
issues.
5. Sea Kelp
This is one of the best sources of trace minerals
such as copper and iodine. A lack of iodine
can lead to brain fog in pregnant women, and
poor brain development in children. Iodine
will strengthen the IQ of the baby and copper
will prevent swayback.
6. Brazil Nuts
Many pregnant women suffer with a complication
called pre-eclampsia in the later stages of
pregnancy. Brazil nuts are a rich source of
magnesium and selenium, two important nutrients
to prevent this high blood pressure condition.
7. Apple Cider Vinegar
Drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
mixed in a glass of water with each meal.
This strengthens the stomach and allows more
nutrients to be absorbed, and improves digestion.
8. Beef Liver
This is one of the best foods you can eat
to keep your iron levels high and prevent
anaemia. Anaemia can lead to miscarriage so
you need must prevent this.
9. Pork
A healthy baby needs lots of B vitamins as
these are involved in their autonomic nervous
system. Eating pork supplies B1 which can
prevent cot death in children, also known
as sudden infant death syndrome. It helps
to prevent toxaemia in pregnant women, and
aids breathing for children when born.
10. Nutritional Yeast
This is yet another wonderful source of the
B vitamin complex. This includes a range of
different nutrients that work together, especially
for the nervous system. This can help prevent
mood swings, liver issues, and anxiety during
pregnancy.
11. Ginger Tea
Morning sickness and feeling sick is very
common when pregnant. A cup of ginger root
tea a few times per week can prevent this
from happening. It also helps to soothe digestion.
12. Coconut Oil
Switch out the vegetable oil and start cooking
with extra virgin coconut oil. This supports
a strong immune system to prevent infections
during pregnancy. It also improves brain health
and development in both mother and child.
13. Avocado
Avocados are rich in healthy fats, potassium
and folate. These nutrients support fetal
health and can prevent birth defects in children.
They also prevent leg cramps in mothers.
14. Kiwi
Eating kiwis helps the growth and development
of babies as they are high in Vitamin C and
folate. Vitamin C helps to form collagen and
prevent the waters from breaking too early.
15. Bell Peppers
Another wonderful source of Vitamin C and
phytonutrients to support a healthy pregnancy.
This also helps women to absorb more iron
for healthy blood flow.
16. Broccoli
It’s important to eat leafy greens in the
cruciferous family every single day. Broccoli
supplies potassium for healthy fluid balance
in the body. It’s also rich in antioxidants,
folate, zeaxanthin, calcium and much more.
As you can see there are some wonderful super
foods that you can eat during pregnancy.
Eating a mixture of these foods will supply
the body with the nutrients that it needs
to support a healthy mother and child.
We highly recommend cutting back on sugary
foods and refined grains, as these can pull
nutrients out of the body and cause blood
sugar issues.
